Lombardi, Landry, and Wooden…Great Coaches, Great Managers
Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 11, 2011
CAR-Research XRM, (http://www.CAR-Research.com) a single-source CRM solution uniquely branded as; "XRM, Exceeding CRM", today announced that its senior vice president, Patrick Kelly, will be a featured speaker at the 10th Digital Dealer Conference & Exposition to be held April 19-21, 2011, in Orlando, Fla. Kelly's speech, titled "Lombardi, Landry, and Wooden…Great Coaches, Great Managers", will offer attendees clues to how these great coaches would manage a dealership team in today's economic environment, including many new tips on how to increase sales with 60 percent closing percentages instead of the average 18 percent that many dealerships accept.
Kelly will give a hands-on presentation that will detail the steps necessary to pattern any dealership management team after the greatest coaches that ever lived, and why these tools will transform that team into a championship level competitor. The presentation will teach dealers how to:
1. Identify and implement the basic processes that were used by the greatest coaches of all time, which must be put into place before any sales organization will be able to transform from mediocrity to greatness. How not to settle for 'best of the worst' or 'worst of the best' and truly put any team on the path to greatness.
2. How to create a culture of process and accountability in a dealership, and get buy in from staff to 'want' to create this culture, because they cannot imagine going back to doing business the way they used to.
3. How to create 60 percent closing percentages instead of the average 18 percent that many dealerships accept.
4. How to teach any sales person to become their own marketing director, and why business development from within is so vital in the success formula in today's automotive environment.
